First of all I would like to say, there is absolutely """NO""" wait time for true emergencies!!! Second, the government now has strict guidelines in place concerning pain medicine, so this is not the physicians fault for NOT prescribing pain medicine. Third, the emergency room is not intended to be used for your primary care needs. If you are experiencing anything other than a true, life threatening emergency, you should go to your primary care physician or visit an Urgent Care facility. The emergency room is NOT for colds, flu, stomach bugs and so forth, this is common sense. Also, don't get upset if you come into the emergency room by ambulance and end up getting rolled out into the waiting room because you were trying to get faster service. Patients with true, life threatening emergency's are seen first, then as time permits, non emergency patients are seen in the order they come in..... My family and I have used this hospital's emergency room since the very beginning (1960's) and we've always received the very best care, except for the night I had to take a close friend into the emergency room a few years back. The only reason, """the only reason""" she was shuffled through and misdiagnosed with a stomach bug is because the emergency room was packed (every seat taken) with people waiting to be seen for their stomach bug. My close friend had appendicitis and needed emergency care. She was sent home and her appendix ruptured. I blame this neglect on every individual who was there in the emergency room that night waiting to be seen who honestly had ""NO"" business being in the emergency room in the first place. The emergency room doctor just assumed that my friend was like everybody else waiting to be seen, so no tests were ordered and no blood work was done. Again I say, if it's not a life threatening (true emergency) go to your primary care provider or Urgent Care facility and leave the emergency room open for true, life threatening emergency's!!! One last thing, the government also has strict guidelines in place where antibiotics are concerned, so don't blame this facility for telling you to get "over the counter" medicine's for your cold, flu, stomach bugs and so forth.
Spent 3 days with my wife in this hospital..All of the test came back negative for heart problems. In less than a week we transported her to Moses Cone with the same symptoms . Her Aorota had 95% blockage that's a Widowmaker. All the rest we're blocked at 80% or more. She was given a triple bypass .. My hats off to Moses Cone because I would have lost my wife in less than a month after this hospital said they couldn't find anything wrong. This hospital is a death sentence and unless you are suicidal , don't go anywhere near it. This hospital should be torn down and replaced with a monument for the people who have died here..
The Emergency Department is excellent and very courteous caring professional and efficient! Thanks for what you do!
This ER has lost most of their physicians and specialists. No GI, no Ortho, no Cardio there anymore and no Ultrasound after normal business hours... You will wait (potentially hours) to see a nurse practitioner or physicians assistant. The care is erratic and the environment is chaotic. Some of reception staff are relaxed and unconcerned. May as well go to your local urgent care unless it’s a true emergency. If a true emergency try to go elsewhere. This is no longer a real ER.
Not the worst E.R visit you'll have
